Iowa Severe Weather Outlook

Iowa Severe Weather Outlook

We continue to watch the threat for severe weather on Sunday. Yesterday we first told you about the threat of severe weather across the upper Mississippi valley. Today, that threat has been expanded slightly more to the east. The majority of the state of Iowa is in the risk of severe weather.

A cold front will be approaching the state by Sunday afternoon and into the evening, and this will be where the main focus of storms will be. Right now the atmosphere looks to be setting up to be able to support supercells. We would like to stress that it is still very early, but it looks like these storms will be capable of producing large hail, damaging winds and even isolated tornadoes. Since it is still fairly early, timing and location is hard to pinpoint down right now, but with it being Labor Day weekend, this is something you will want to keep an eye on. Our team will continue to monitor the very latest, and determine our chasing plans. We will bring you all the very latest developments on our Facebook and Twitter pages as well as right here at
